Do you need to fill the gap of seam before applying the tape? Thanks.

Yes I suggest filling the seam before you put the tape on that way you avoid the bubble that will probably come if you don't

The articles on this topic have said that you can as long as the cement board and thinset underneath it have had ~24 hours to cure (or less with quick-setting option). But most people tape the same day they lay down the segment board, so base it off the cure times for the underlying cement board.

Answers

Yes, you can. The only time you need to thinset it before tile is if you are applying a waterproof membrane like Redgard, then the tape has to be thinsetted in prior to the membrane being applied.

Yes, the tape is very thin.

Can I use this to strengthen seams and corners before applying concrete veneer to my laminant countertops?

Asked by ChangeCycle January 31, 2019

Answers

If your surface is clean and free of dust it will definitely stick in place and add strength. It should prevent future cracking at the joints. You will be saved the tedious task of tooling concrete through the mesh.

Worst Product on the market
After remodeling several bathrooms and using this tape I find no quality in this product. See attached image where tape adhesive does not hold cement application. When applying cement on this tape it frustratingly detaches from cement board and finally collapses under the weight of application. Must find alternatives to make it work. No quality, no value, just garbage resulting in loss of time, efforts and money

Great for cement boards
I used this to tape a shower surround of cement board and on the hardiebacker on the floor. The stickiness is convenient and I cut it with a ulitity knife. I was also able to work thinset through it in the seams. This product is key to a solid tile backing. No cracking from shifting so far

Makes building counter tops a breeze!
Love the self-adhesive feature of this cement board tape. Stays in place. Creates nice sharp edges for counter tops and excellent for creating round tables and edges. Very easy to work with.

Good product
Picked up a roll of this tape to use on all the joints of the cement backer board flooring we recently put down in our master bath. It goes down easily and I smoothed it over with a 3in1. Just be sure that there is no dust or anything before you apply it or it won't adhere properly. I am not exactly too sure how much extra help this stuff provides but hey if it improves the strength of the flooring I'm all floor it. See what I did there? You see what I did there.

Amazingly easy to work with - does inside and outside corners with ease. Two thumbs up.
Just remodeled our bathroom and made a shower niche with backer board. I used this self adhesive cement board tape to reinforce the inside and outside corners of the niche along with the seams of the backer board. Amazed at how easy it is to work with, sticks and stays put and even stayed put on inside and outside corners. We cut it with scissors and applied the thinset as soon as we'd finished taping the joints. There was no sign of the tape losing adhesion although the instructions recommend that you don't leave an unsealed taped joint too long before applying the thinset otherwise the adhesive bond can break down. Once the thinset was set, we applied a waterproof membrane to the shower niche and the whole job was very easy.

We are sorry you are having a hard time with our Cement Board tape. The best performance we recommend that you only use AR tape on cement backer boards and embed with thinset mortar.
This tape was very easy to work with it stuck really well it worked great in the corners.
